    Cache folder in slimserver

    Hi,

    I'm finding that I have to rebuild my music library every time I start
    slimserver. Can you tell me where the default location for the music cache
    file is? I suspect that it's failing to write to this location, but there
    don't seem to be any useful errors in the slimserver log.

    Thanks

    Andy

    this depends entirely on what OS you are using, whether you are running as a
    system service or as a user application, and what version you are running for
    the server. Try searching for .slimserver.db (linux) or slimserver.db (win) if
    you are running 5.4, or .slimserversql.db and slimserversql.db if you are
    running the 6.0 builds.

    I'm using 5.4 under Linux. I'll try a search, but I wouldn't be surprised if
    I didn't find anything, as I suspect it's trying to write it somewhere it
    doesn't have permission to.

    Yep, just done a search and found nothing. How can I find out where it's
    trying to put it?

    Thanks

    On my Linux box using 5.4.x rpm it's
    /usr/local/slimserver/Cache/.slimserver.db - even though I don't use the
    cache (the file is only 335 bytes).

    Interesting. I am using the nightly build 5.4.X version and I don't
    even have a Cache directory, but I do have a .slimserver.db file in
    /usr/local/slimserver which is 8MB in size. And yes, the cache is being
    used.

    All I have in there is an 'usr' directory, that contains
    local/slimserver/HTML and what appear to be cached versions of the HTML
    interface.

    look in /etc/slimserver.conf for a line starting with 'cachedir'. that will
    give the location that slimserver is trying to use.

    also, remember that it will be .slimserver.db which would normally appear hidden
    with just ls, you need to use ls -a

    I created the 'Cache' directory, and edited the 'cachedir' parameter in the
    config file.

    My '/usr/local/slimserver' directory is owned by slimserver.slimserver, and
    is 775. All the subdirectories are the same owner / permissions.
